It feels like we’ve been waiting forever now for Hammer Films and CBS Films to bring us their feature film adaptation of THE WOMAN IN BLACK- but fear not, horror fans! The wait is almost over and to get you ready for the upcoming release, a brand new one-sheet was unveiled today.
THE WOMAN IN BLACK stars Daniel Radcliffe, Ciaran Hinds, Janet McTeer, Liz White, Alisa Khazanova, Tim McMullan, Roger Allam, Daniel Cerqueira, Shaun Dooley, Mary Stockley, Cathy Sara, David Burke, Victor McGuire and Lucy May Barker. James Watkins (EDEN LAKE) is directing a screenplay by Jane Goldman (KICK-ASS, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS).
THE WOMAN IN BLACK follows a young lawyer, Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe), who is ordered to travel to a remote corner of the UK and sort out a recently deceased client’s papers. As he works alone in an old and isolated house, Kipps begins to uncover its tragic secrets, and his unease grows when he discovers that the local village is held hostage by the ghost of a scorned woman set on vengeance.
Look for THE WOMAN IN BLACK in US theatres on February 3rd and in the UK on February 10th.
